Two of Canada’s largest retailers said Wednesday they are launching and expanding grocery home delivery, but using quite different models and price points.
Loblaw Companies Limited announced a partnership with Instacart to provide a premium service, delivering groceries in as little as an hour, and at a premium price.
The service, launching in Toronto Dec. 6, will charge a delivery fee, plus a service fee of 7.5 per cent of the order. The delivery fees will start at $3.99 and will vary depending on the size of the order and the delivery time selected.
